The Extension Homemakers Clubs are sponsoring an Adult & Youth Open Class in Home Economics at the county 4-H Fair. This event is open to any adult or youth (including 4-H members & others) who is a present resident of Clay County or who is a member of a Clay County Extension Homemakers or 4-H Club, if residing out of the county. The committee is urging all interested people to enter.
According to the 2013 Community Assessment for Older Adults in Owen and Monroe Counties, 50% of adults are caregivers. Through various community programming efforts, we have seen that caregiving is a tough job and one that often goes unnoticed with little support for the people giving care. Please complete this brief survey that will be used to asses the needs of caregivers and identify the strengths and gaps within caregiving in order to improve resources for our communities.

Arthritis is an inflammation of a joint which impacts numerous farmers and gardeners on a daily basis. Working on a farm requires individuals to climb up steep slopes, lift odd and heavy objects, walk long distances holding heavy items, and grip items tightly for extended periods of time. All of those motions are made even more difficult when you are dealing with arthritis.
